BeOS & Derivatives This is one of those news items that's fun to write, fun to read, fun to comment on, and where no one will be able to say anything unkind. It's all just one big ball of awesome fluffiness. TuneTracker, the BeOS radio automation software, has just released something very special: TuneTracker System 5, the first version designed entirely and specifically for Haiku. In fact, it actually includes Haiku in the software package. Better yet, TuneTracker also unveiled several system-in-a-box products - which have Haiku and TuneTracker pre-installed.

Quite brave of them to rely on an alpha version.

Although the Haiku users among us know that stability is not an issue on the right hardware ;)

Haiku needs a few more heroes like them to kick-start the spiral of success.

Given the area of application - managing a music collection and streaming its contents over the internet - it likely made more sense to leap with Haiku than port/re-code the underlying media management code to another operating system. After-all, wasn't being media centric one of the strengths of BeOS?

If I remember correctly, they did the same when Zeta was around. If so, this indicates that the foundation defined in BeOS and being refined in Haiku is still relevant.
